Belfast Zoo has more than 1200 animals and 140 species, many of which are under threat in their natural habitat.
Here you'll be able to see Barbary lions and red kangaroos, spider monkeys and Moloch gibbons, giraffes and elephants and even Malayan sun bears. You could also get to see them being fed!
Visit the exotic birds in the Bird Park, hang out in the Rainforest House with Jasmine the two-toed sloth, explore the play park and farm at the lake side.

It may be worth checking out Belfast Zoo's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Belfast Zoo before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
